NISSAN NET INCOME AT 54.1 BILLION YEN IN FY2012 THIRD QUARTER
(February 8, 2013) – Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., today announced financial results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2012, ending March 31, 2013, as well as for the first nine months. In the third quarter (October-December 2012), the consolidated net income after taxes totaled 54.1 billion yen (US$670 million, euro 510 million), a year-on-year decline of 34.6%.
Third quarter net revenue was 2.2084 trillion yen (US$27.23 billion, euro 21.01 billion), down 5.3% year-on-year. Nissan reported an operating profit of 62.1 billion yen (US$770 million, euro 590 million), down 47.4% compared to the same period in FY2011, and an operating profit margin of 2.8%. Ordinary profit was 89.0 billion yen (US$1.10 billion, euro 850 million).
Nissan sold 1.159 million vehicles worldwide in the October-December quarter, a 3.8% decrease compared to the prior year. “Nissan’s performance in the third quarter did not meet our expectations. This was primarily the result of difficult operating conditions in Europe for the entire auto industry, in China for Japanese automakers, and in the U.S. for Nissan,” said Nissan President and CEO Carlos Ghosn. “We have taken action to reignite our sales momentum and growth under the Nissan
Power 88 business plan. Looking forward, we have important vehicle launches. We anticipate further yen correction. We have made swift organizational changes to help stimulate our business performance. And we remain confident that we will meet our full-year outlook.”
For the nine months ending December 31st, 2012, Nissan reported consolidated net revenues of 6.7552 trillion yen (US$84.44 billion, euro 66.23 billion) and an operating profit of 349.2 billion yen (US$4.37 billion, euro 3.42 billion), which equates to an operating margin of 5.2%. Ordinary profit totaled 364.6 billion yen (US$4.56 billion, euro 3.57 billion) while net income came to 232.4 billion yen (US$2.91 billion, euro 2.28 billion).
For the April-December 2012 period, Nissan sales increased 6.0% year-on-year to reach 3.635 million units. Nissan’s forecast for the full fiscal year ending March 31, 2013, is unchanged. Although the operating environment remains challenging, positive contributions from yen correction, and disciplined cost management within the company will enable a renewed focus on achieving robust operating profit. Nissan has forecast full fiscal year operating profit outlook of 575 billion yen (US $7.21 billion, euro 5.65 billion) and net income of 320 billion yen (US $4.02 billion, euro 3.14 billion).

NISSAN RETAINS EUROPEAN MARKET SHARE WITH SOLID
- Fiscal year-to-date sales up across 8 European markets versus last year
- 3 markets including the UK record double-digit growth in January 2013
- Crossover segment remains fastest growing category representing 60% of total sales
ROLLE (Switzerland) 12th February, 2013 – Nissan today announced it held onto its market share of 3.9% in January 2013 with solid monthly and fiscal year-to-date sales in some of Nissan’s major European markets. This contributed to the 47,449 units sold during the month versus 55,098 units sold in January, 2012.
Whilst European market share was stable in January 2013, Russia, Spain and the UK, countries where Nissan has a strong manufacturing footprint, all posted a market share of well over 5%. This was despite the on-going economic stagnation and fiscal uncertainty in Europe.
Fiscal year to date sales were also up in 8 European markets including the UK, Austria, Slovakia, Denmark, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Iceland and Kazakstan. In the UK, where Nissan’s manufacturing plant surpassed 500,000 units at the end of last year, monthly sales were up 23% compared to January 2012 and fiscal year to date sales were up 9% versus this time last year.
Fuelling this growth was high consumer demand for Nissan’s crossover segment which continues to go from strength to strength. Sales of the Nissan Qashqai, Qashqai+2 and Nissan Juke accounted for nearly 60% of total January sales. The Nissan Note hatchback also recorded solid sales this month, up 43% compared to January 2012, with Nissan’s van segment also performing well – sales of the NV200 and NV400 were both up compared to last year.
Nissan Vice President for Sales Operations in Europe, Guillaume Cartier, said: “2013 will remain a challenging year for the entire automotive industry but consistent growth across Nissan’s high performing product categories gives us the confidence we need to weather the economic storm.”
“Not only are we expanding our footprint across Europe with new dealerships, but we’re investing heavily in our product range to bring new technologies, new innovations and accessible performance to our customers.”
